UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 Bottle poured into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood Seal Beach. Opaque and very dark brown body, a half finger of tan head with high retention that eventually settles to a ring and islands. Aroma is citrus tartness, wine barrel wood, roasted malt, some coffee, and a touch of earthy funk. Taste is initially light sweetness with burnt sugar and molasses, then comes the sour: citrus and apple skin, some bitter roasty notes on the finish. Medium body, thick but smooth texture, moderate-plus carbonation, slightly sour dry puckering finish. A lot going on in this beer!

ben4321 (4881) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Location: 750 ml bottle from Winooski Beverage, 9/26/15

Aroma: The aroma is dark berries (black, blue, black cherry), oak, and red wine, plus a little plum
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a thin ring of light brown head and mild lacing
Flavor: The flavor is sour fruity, and yeah, pretty much exactly like the aroma would suggest
Palate: Medium-plus bodied, more of a sipper, drinks nicely from cellar temp through room temp
Overall Impression: Another excellent one from Anchorage. There’s a ton of complexity here, most of which seems to come from the barrels and the brett. I’m sure the underlying beer was solid too, but those are definitely the dominate flavors here.

Une mousse mince se pose timidement sur une bière noire et opaque. Quelques fruits foncés (raisins, bleuets) se joignent à des arômes chocolatés et torréfiés pour former un bouquet simple, mais invitant. La magie de cette bière se met en marche en bouche. Les saveurs de chocolat et de pain grillé s’amalgament à des notes vineuses et fruitées très vives dans une belle acidité pas trop intense. Une vague de chaleur alcoolisée vient ramasser tout ça. Des tannins boisés percent de plus en plus lorsque la bière se réchauffe. Il s’en passe des affaires dans cette bière et c’est incroyablement bon!

airrick2003 (723) - Louisiana, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Appearance: pours with a smaller tan head that dissipates quickly, the beer is a very dark black, I'm not even seeing colors on the edges when held up to the light Aroma: Pino noir wine, alcohol, funky, perhaps coffee Taste: very interesting, it's sour yet at the same time has a coffee bitterness to it, nestled in there you also get the red grape flavor from the Pino noir aging, alcohol warmth Palate: much thicker and full mouthfeel that I normally find in sours, unique aftertaste is a mixture of red wine coffee and sour beer, soft carbonation Overall: very unique beer, the way the flavors all come thru assertively is impressive, not your typical stout or sour beer, not really easy to drink, I like it overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
